Workflow

Request: the code to send to the API

Send an API request to the following endpoint to delete a picture that has been shared on a Facebook page:

DELETE /update/identities/<identity_token>/facebook/page/<pageid>/picture/<pictureid>.json

The <identity_token> is obtained whenever one of your users connects using Facebook. The <pageid> must be part of the pages that the identity is currently configured to be an administrator of and the <pictureid> must be the identifier of a picture uploaded to that page.

In order to use this endpoint the permission Manage Pages (manage_pages) must be enabled in the Facebook settings in your OneAll account and the user must have granted that permission when he logged in with Facebook.

Result: the code returned by the API

The API either returns a HTTP status code 200 if the picture was deleted successfully or an appropriate message body with further details on the error that occured.
